Talkback: How to grow wallflowers

I'm wondering whether the mild winter confused them - probably didn't think it was time to flower yet.

Watching Wimbledon here   not a huge tennis fan but I do like to watch Wimbledon and sometimes get quite enthusiastic - fond memories of watching Goran Ivaniševic  and also a big Agassi fan .

I forgot to tell you that on the way home I went past that roadside stall where I bought those Dianellas - did I swerve across the road and screech to a halt again - I did  and this time a lovely well grown plant of Salvia 'Icing Sugar' found it's way into my heart - it's destined for the front garden near some purple sage.

Hello folks  

Pdoc, sorry your Mum's not well - hope she's much better soon ((hugs)).

Lovely day out with son - I drove son down Rayleigh (I thought we were supposed to go to Southend but I was wrong about that ) and back with the top down until we got back to Suffolk, when the heavens opened again.  Then I went and visited the Aged Ps.  - both were well - Ma very muddled about things but cheerful today - Pa a bit frustrated by Ma's confusion as he doesn't have enough breath to argue with her - but the staff are so kind and caring with both of them - we really are so lucky.  

Having read back I'm wondering whether I'm easily confused too
